Particle deposition on the wall in a dilute turbulent vertical pipe flow is modeled. The different mechanisms of particle transport to the wall are considered, i.e., Brownian motion, turbulent diffusion and turbophoresis. The Saffman lift force, the electrostatic force, the virtual mass effect and wall surface roughness are taken into account in the model developed. A boundary condition that accounts for the probability of particle sticking to the wall is suggested. An analytical solution for deposition of small Brownian particles is obtained. A particle relaxation time range, where the model developed is reliably applicable, is evaluated. Computational results obtained at different particle-wall sticking probabilities in the wide particle relaxation time range are presented and discussed.
